High Ejection Fraction Gallbladder
Resting HR 120-160 found in notes I also have Left ventricular ejection fraction 52% been passing out a lot should I be worried/is this the cause?
Unfortunately yes: You could be having a dangerous heart rhythm, leading to the passing out. The ejection fraction of 52% is still within the normal range; however, you are tachycardic at baseline, and the fast heart rate may overestimate your true ejection fraction as well as lead to heart damage. If you pass out again, I recommend calling 911, otherwise, see cardiologist ASAP. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Hi doctors, was just wondering what is considered a high gallbladder ejection fraction during a hida scan?
Usually normal: Hyperkinetic or hyperactive gallbladder is not generally accepted as a diagnosis. A small group of patients (63) was symptomatic with cck infusion with greater than 80% ejection fraction. 28 of these patients underwent removal of gall bladder. 97% of these 28 patients showed improvement in symptoms following surgery. . More published retrospective and prospective studies needed. ...Read more
Can 19% gallbladder ejection fraction lead to elevated levels of amylase/lipase? No stones/sludge found; problem started while pregnant but persists.
Depends.: A high EF is not in itself harmful. Certainly depends upon the underlying reason and your physiology at the time of the exam. Hard to explain here, but if there is no other anatomic abnormality this may have been a normal finding. You should discuss this with the provider who ordered your test. ...Read more
Reduced gb ejection: Gallbladder ef determined as percentage emptying of gall bladder on hida nuclear medicine study with administration of cck ( cholecystokinin, hormone). In adults usually greater than 35% is normal. Low gbef can be related to gall bladder disease or dyskinesia. Usually compared to findings on ultrasound such as gall stones or wall thickening.Gbef affected by degree of fasting and pain medications. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
